The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of units complemented by granite worktops. Appliances include a range cooker, extractor, Butlers sink, and with space for further appliances. Across the hall lies the elegant sitting room/study, extending the length of the house, with a glazed sun room with a study nook, bringing in the sunshine and French doors overlooking the garden. The ceiling is beamed and the decorative fireplace with a retro fitted bespoke gas fire provides a focal point to the room.

      Stairs from the sitting room rise to the first floor. The principal bedroom lies to the front with an en suite shower room. There are two further bedrooms, one to the rear with lovely garden views and a generous walk in dressing room, both served by the family bathroom.
